“We respect all opinions, of course.” With this concise and cold message, they send to the PP the reaction of the president of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, to the sexist and violent chants uttered by residents of the Elías Ahuja residence hall against the women who live in nearby accommodation. While the leader of the party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, crossed out the events as “inadmissible” and asked “to continue working in all areas to end these intolerable macho attitudes”, Ayuso has chosen to go it alone to avoid a condemnation, explicit or implicit , and attacking the Prosecutor’s Office for opening proceedings to decide whether or not to act because of what happened.
Ayuso points to Feijóo as the alternative to the “soft men” that he personifies in Pedro Sánchez
Before the questions of the journalists, who wanted to know if the regional president condemned the sexist insults, the answer has been forceful: “No”. Ayuso has not stopped there: “What I condemn is that the Prosecutor’s Office is now suddenly focused on this and when very serious things happen at the University, at the university level, in coexistence absolutely nothing is ever said.”
In case there were any doubts, the leader of the Madrid PP, with Feijóo’s vote, has continued: “It is not that I condemn it, it is that many more things happen every day and we are politicizing it all the time, every day everything”.
The Madrid president thus deepens the differences, not only in form but also in substance, with her leader. But not only. The general secretary, Cuca Gamarra, described the events as “disgusting machismo” and concluded: “These songs have no place or justification in Spanish society.”
A message similar to the one launched by the vice president of Congress, Ana Pastor: “These images produce indignation in me. Our society must fight to eradicate all sexist and degrading actions against women. And these despicable screams are.”
The Madrid Prosecutor’s Office has decided to open proceedings around the sexist chants, but not on its own initiative but as a result of a complaint by the Movement Against Intolerance, led by Esteban Ibarra. The Public Ministry has explained that the investigation is aimed at a possible crime against fundamental rights and public freedoms, which includes hate crimes. He has also announced that his first measure will be to ask the Police for all the information on the event that he has.
This has earned Ayuso not only to attack the Prosecutor’s Office, but also to once again set a different course from the one given by Feijóo. And it is that the Madrid president has not been alone and has received the support of her subordinates in the Madrid PP, such as her general secretary, Alfonso Serrano, or her predecessor in office, Ana Camins.
While the leadership of Elías Ahuja opens a internal investigation into what happenedat the party’s national headquarters on Calle de Génova in Madrid, they are trying to prevent Ayuso’s urge to raise a cultural battle against the coalition government and against Equality policies whenever possible from becoming a new internal fire.
